I've got a full size ice cream/yogurt maker that my grandparents gave me waaay back in the early 90s....
I'm trying to pare down to more essential tools in my kitchen and get rid of big stuff unitasker gadgets. I haven't used the ice cream maker b/c it's kind of a pain. It's messy and time consuming, and isn't a very high quality machine either. I'm thinking about buying a little cheapie Hamilton Beach one to replace. I saw them on sale for ~ 20.00.
It's a tiny little thing, and makes a little bit of ice cream, which is plenty. The one I have now makes about 1 1/2 quarts, which is way more than we ever need.
I have been doing a lot of banana soft serve, and branched out to other fruits but thought that gadet might be good for some simple frozen yogurt, etc.
I just don't want to buy something that's going to fall apart immediately. Anyone have that one or another to recommend? Mind you, I'm looking for small appliance, that makes small quantities, and decent price!
